New Delhi: The Human Resource Development Ministry’s Bharatvani project will surely prove to be a great boon for the promotion on Indian Languages, a step put forward by the BJP government.

The Ministry will release multimedia content and study material for school and professional courses in 22 Indian scheduled languages on this International Mother Language Day on February 21.

Task for gathering and compiling the content for the portal is assigned to the Central Institute of Indian Languages (CIIL), Mysore by the Ministry. This project, creating a knowledge society is also a part of the Prime Minister’s Digital India initiative.

School and college textbooks, dictionaries, grammar books in 22 languages will be made available on the portal. The content for the website and other data is being compiled by University Grant Commission, Central Board of Secondary Education, National Book Trust, Indira Gandhi National Open University, National Council of Educational Research and Training and its 16 state partners.

“Besides the school textbooks, Bharatvani will also have books on anthropology, history, books on medical science and text books for engineering courses, available in all possible regional languages,” informed Professor Awadesh Kumar Mishra, director of CIIL.

Education bodies affiliated by Sangh have been only attempting to influence decisions made by the officials to make study material for professional courses available in regional languages.(input from agencies)
